The Celtic fire festival of Imbolc is celebrated in early February. It honors Brigid, patron Goddess of blacksmiths, brewers, and bards, also referred to as smithcrafters, healers and poets.
For an individual, follow a simple ritual using a red or white candle and something to symbolize Brigid -- a cast iron skillet, a mortar and pestle, or journal.
For a group, create a ritual using white ribbons to represent the swans that migrate from Iceland to Ireland for the winter.
See Episode 2 for an Imbolc ritual inspired by the magical properties of root vegetables, especially potatoes, carrots, and onions.
